​About HAB

Human Animal Bond, Inc. (HAB) is a non-profit service organization that is staffed by area volunteers and their therapy pets dedicated to providing animal-assisted activities and promoting the human-animal bond in the Leavenworth and Lansing, Kansas area. It consists of “teams” that go on scheduled visits to local hospitals, schools, correctional facilities, various types of health care, veterans' services, and convalescent centers. Quarterly meetings are held for members with informative and educational programs.

Research shows that visits with therapy pets encourage reminiscence, and social interaction and may result in stress relief and incidental physiotherapy. Medical studies suggest that blood pressure may be lowered and hospital stays shortened when patients have access to pets. Often, a visit with a pet can be the high point in the day of a shut-in, bringing happiness and a sense of calm and well-being.

“When I look into the eyes of an animal,

I do not see an animal. I see a living being.  I see a friend. I feel a soul.”
